to look at a real potential impact in the election, and also confidence in washington to tackle the big problems. >> something that's been whispered about the last few days and getting a little more traction is this question of the 14th amendment and whether its discussion that the public debt would give the president a mechanism, if all else fails, to unilaterally go in and raise the debt ceiling. what is the word from the white house and are they getting pressure fraom within the party? >> there is pressure if need be. they are saying that the president's legal team has ruled out. but there's a lot of white house lawyers who are still involved in all of the potential end game. the reality is that nobody wants to default. they recognize what the consequences of that would be. so, i think that's still under consideration, but nobody wants to push that hard while they think there's the prospect here of a deal finally emerging. >> all right, david gregory, we'll talk to you a bit later in the broadcast. thanks for now. >> thanks, lester. >>> now time to get a check of the morning's other
. the key sticking point is this issue of raising the debt limit, large enough, big enough, so that it gets us through 2012, gets us into the spring of 2013. right now, of course, the boehner bill and what republicans were supporting would have this debt limit come to another vote in the next -- >> at this point in time -- >> harry reid wants to do is simply figure out a way to satisfy the second round of deficit reduction, create a stronger trigger potentially, whatever he can come to, to get more republicans to support his way in order to get this debt limit passed 2012. i think he's going to come to an agreement. the question is, how big of an agreement is it? is it an agreement that barely gets the eight republicans he wants? or does it get 20 republicans and sends a strong, bipartisan message to make sure this thing doesn't get gummed up again in the house. >> does he have a dance partner in terms of a republican willing to negotiate? >> reporter: he's got a few dance partners potentially, but right now he's not working very well with mitch mcconnell. that's not clear. but don't be sur
been not a big deal but a small deal, something that would raise the debt limit. whether it's short term or long term. he wants a longer term. the advantage he's gained in public opinion, we saw that from our poll earlier in the week. it's why, by the way, speaker boehner was right when he said in his press conference, this wasn't about personalities, it was about different visions of country. house republicans are not playing politics. it's crazy politics what they're doing and republican leaders think it may hurt the party but it's what they believe and that's why we're at this point. >> john, it's interesting, speaker boehner called his press conference a few minutes after president obama but notably after the markets had already closed. was this intentional? >> reporter: absolutely it was intentional. the speaker was trying to do what he could to minimize the fallout from the collapse of these talks. and that's why there's urgency in meetings today and also on sunday to try to come to some resolution before markets open on monday in the hope that they can avoid a negative reacti

if there is a chance to put this big deal back together that he and speaker boehner were very close to having this deal last week, that in many ways this speech was almost a post-mortem, almost setting up the blame game for the fact that no big deal is going to happen and no matter what happens here at the end of the day the debt ceiling is probably going to go up, nobody is going to be happy about the deal. i can tell you this, ann, i had a bunch of democrats who said to me would have been a good speech to give two weeks ago. >> i know that he calls republican activism, so much so that we hear capitol hill websites were crashing last night because so many people were trying to e-mail representatives. it sounds like he spooked main street. will he also speak wall street? >> no, wall street is calm. the markets are looking good today. we had a blip down in the indicators from 9:05 and 9:20, then i came right back. nobody is buying the panic or skyrocketing interest rates scenario. >> that said, hedge funds are prepare for a default. >> there's a possibility that we could default. it will be short term.
